Formula 1 odds, picks, race time: Surprising 2022 Belgian Grand Prix prediction, F1 best bets by top model

Circuit de Spa-Francorchamps in Stavelot, Belgium has been a regular stop on the Formula 1 schedule since 1925 and the 2022 Belgian Grand Prix will bring the world’s best drivers back to Spa on Sunday. Formula One has been off for nearly a month since the Hungarian Grand Prix on July 31, but the last two podiums have been identical. Max Verstappen won with Mercedes teammates Lewis Hamilton and George Russell finishing first and second, respectively, in Hungary and France.

Verstappen (7-2) is the defending champion at Spa and ran the fastest lap at practice on Friday, but is third on the 2022 Belgian Grand Prix odds board at Caesars Sportsbook. Ferrari’s Carlos Sainz is the 13-5 favorite with Hamilton just behind him at 11-4 in the Belgium GP odds. The green flag will drop at 9 a.m. ET on Sunday and the weather forecast is ideal. Before analyzing the 2022 Belgian Grand Prix starting grid and making any Formula 1 picks, be sure to check out the latest 2022 Belgian GP predictions and betting advice from SportsLine’s proven projection model.

Developed by daily Fantasy pro and SportsLine predictive data engineer Mike McClure, this proprietary Formula 1 prediction model simulates every race 10,000 times, taking into account factors such as track history and recent results. It’s had a strong history of success in motorsports, correctly predicting seven winners during the 2021 NASCAR season and its projected leaderboards have forecasted winners across multiple racing formats.

The model has been scorching hot when it comes to picking Formula 1 race events dating back to 2021. It nailed both of Leclerc’s wins in 2022, and at the 2021 Mexican Grand Prix, the model was strongly backing Verstappen as its top pick. The result: Verstappen dominated the field and ran away with a surprise victory. The model followed that up by calling Verstappen’s win at the Rolex Emilia Romagna GP in April. Anyone who followed the model’s lead on those plays has seen huge returns

Now, the model has dialed in on the 2022 Formula 1 Belgian Grand Prix and just released its coveted picks and leaderboard projections. You can head to SportsLine now to see the complete 2022 Belgian GP leaderboard projection.

Top 2022 Formula 1 Belgian GP predictions

One massive shocker: McClure is fading current race favorite Carlos Sainz (13-5). The 27-year-old Ferrari driver is the son of former world rally champion Carlos Sainz Sr. and he captured his first career Formula 1 victory last month at Silverstone in the UK. However, Sainz’s results in 2022 have been incredibly inconsistent with Ferrari’s mechanical failures being particularly troublesome.

Sainz was forced to retire in Austria, Azerbaijan, Italy and Australia and Spa has been particularly inhospitable throughout his F1 career. Sainz has never finished better than 10th at Spa and has three DNFs and a DNS in seven career starts on the famed circuit. Sainz finished with the fifth-fastest lap at practice on Friday and even though Ferrari has been brilliant in bursts, the inconsistency makes Sainz a risky play at +260. See who the model is backing right here.

How to make 2022 Belgian Grand Prix picks

The model is also targeting a triple-digit longshot to make a surprising surge up the leaderboard, and a driver outside the top five on the Belgian GP odds board to earn a surprising podium finish. Anyone who backs him could hit it big. You can find out who it is, and see all of the model’s F1 picks and predictions at SportsLine.
